you wash your clothes with cold water in the washing machine
It can be tempting
to save money on your electric bill by not using hot water
in your washing machine freezing cold water instead. But is
this really a smart decision once you factor in other things?
Unfortunately, the answer is not really.
When you wash clothes
in cold water, unless the garment washing instructions clearly
state cold water only, you will find that your clothing does
not get as clean when you wash with cold water into the warm
or hot. This is because laundry detergent does not dissolve
as well in cold water as a dozen warm or hot water.
So even though
you might save money on your electric bill, chances are pretty
good you will find the clothes aren't clean and you'll need
to wash them again. So don't be tempted to save money with
cold water, as it will cost you more the long run.
